Looking Back in Regret – Written Saturday 22nd October 1994 (Aged 19)

Looking Back in Regret 

it all seems so easy now 
than pain, that has gone away 
to join yesterday
so i guess if you are not changing 
then you are not living 
if you happy as you are
or who you are with, then that is okay 
but there must be things you want 
things you want to do 
but i guess it does not really matter 
it is up to you 
just as long, as you do not get old 
and look back in regret 
i have so many memories 
so many of which i will never forget 
for as long as i live 
and maybe, afterwards, 
it will all come through in the end 
i have won the battle within myself
and i want to tell everyone,
i have won
